of kansas, forced the closing of kansas city's airport. elsewhere, inches of ice, rivers of rain, and as we said, it ain't over yet and it's a monster. meteorologist tom sater issing traing the storm and joins us now from the weather center. mr. sater, why is this night different from all other nights? >> that's a very good question. i think because at one point, 20% of the country was under a watch or warning. if you look at the pictures, what is staggering here is, in the midwest, where the snow is moving to chicago, indianapolis, a mix in chicago. some of the totals, sure, 9, 10, 12, even 15 inches. to give you an idea, wichita, kansas, records go back to the 1880s. the greatest snowfall was january 1962, 15 inches, 14.2. you just missed the all-time record. now that we're watching ice accumulation in northern arkansas, into missouri, up to 4 inches of ice, it is now knocking out power. knocking out generators and needing oil lamps tonight. the triple threat. the other part is severe weather. look where the tornado watch is in effect. south of jackson. this includes hattiesburg, mississi
